Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month By Supporting These Tasty Local Businesses

September 15 marks the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month! Wondering how you can celebrate -- and support local Maryland businesses, too? Well, grabbing dinner or drinks from a local establishment is a great way to show support with your wallet (and you get something pretty tasty in return). Here are a few that you can try out.

 

Clavel

This Baltimore bar and restaurant is pretty famous for its mixed drinks (and they take Mezcal seriously here!), but it’s not just about quality, authentic food and beverages here. They’re also committed to supporting the local community through fundraising and outreach. That’s a win-win! Now you can feel even better about ordering an extra starter. Currently, Clavel is doing outdoor dining and carry-out. You can even buy a taco kit to build your own perfect taco! 

 

El Agave

Need a relaxed and casual but authentic go-to for Mexican and Tex-Mex food? El Agave in Catonsville is the place to go! Feast on staples like burritos, fajitas, and street tacos, or try some Mexican favorites from the menu like carne asada or pollo asado. As of press time, El Agave is offering indoor dining, but be sure to check before you go to be aware of any changes. 

 

Casa Carmen Winery

Whether it’s for your virtual book club, your sumptuous homemade dinner, or a gift for a friend, it’s great to have a bottle of local wine on hand. We love local wineries -- and we’ve got the glasses and koozies to prove it! Keep the Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations going by picking up a bottle of wine from Casa Carmen in Chestertown. The owners, originally from Ecuador, traded in professional polo careers for a life of wine, and this place is a must for any visitor to the Eastern Shore. 

 

La Canela

Celebrating a new job, a birthday, or an anniversary? Why not do so with some top-notch, award-winning Peruvian cuisine from this Rockville restaurant? La Canela serves authentic Peruvian dishes for lunch and dinner, like steak, seafood, and short ribs. And you can’t forget dessert! La Canela offers plenty of sweet treats, too. 

 

El Trovador

We can’t forget about breakfast -- it’s the most important meal of the day! If you’re craving huevos rancheros, a breakfast burrito, or a freshly made juice, El Trovador in Parkville has your back. Even better than that? They serve breakfast all day. Even better than that? They also have a wide variety of lunch and dinner carry out options, from enchiladas to soups. And even better than all that? This spot also features a market so you can buy the ingredients to make your favorite dishes at home.
